Survey reflects public trust — Palace
Malacañang yesterday welcomed the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey results showing the majority of Filipinos believe the Philippines is moving into the “right direction,” saying it reflects the public’s trust of the Duterte administration.
“We view this as a reflection of our people’s continued trust and confidence in the President and an affirmation that the policies and programs of the current administration are on the right track,” presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo said in a statement.
The spokesman added Duterte has always emphasized the mandate of government workers is to serve the people.
“Our objective as public servants is thus being able to perform our respective duties well,” said Panelo. “Therefore, we treat the results of this recent survey not as an accolade but as an inspiration for our men and women in the government as they persist in carrying on with their roles in the service.”
He also expressed hope the “strong public appreciation” for the country’s situation would further engage the people in supporting the administration “in building a nation where all Filipinos can experience comfortable and decent lives under a trustworthy government.”
“Together, let us work hand in hand to realize the President’s vision for the Philippines,” Panelo said.
The SWS poll conducted 15 to 23 September showed 75 percent of adult Filipinos are convinced the country is on the right track, five points higher compared to the 70 percent who believed so in June.
On the other hand, 22 percent said the country was in the wrong direction. The remaining three percent did not give an answer.
Duterte had received a +72 “excellent” net satisfaction rating among those who say that the country is in the right direction while his administration scored a +66 “very good” net satisfaction rating.
